Asheville’s Bicycle Count
Sept. 12th – 18th
Asheville’s Bicycle / Pedestrian Task Force is preparing another bicycle count. We need volunteers to work two hours shifts at various intersections throughout the city. The data generated from these bicycle counts is used to advocate for multimodal transportation improvements. Contact Claudia Nix @ ClaudiaNix@libertybikes.com for volunteers details and scheduling.
In the past year, Asheville has made significant strides in improving how we move about our city. As the people of Asheville continue to support bicycling throughout our community, community leaders respond and our transportation infrastructure improves. Each one of us plays an important role making Asheville the model of multimodal transportation of the Southeast. When you show, we grow.
Asheville on Bikes looks forward to cultivating the culture of bicycling with your throughout the year. Thank you for your volunteerism.
